Data mining can in many instances be viewed as the task of computing a representation of a theory of a model or a database. In this paper we present a randomized algorithm that can be used to compute the representation of a theory in terms of the most specific sentences of that theory. In addition to randomization, the algorithm uses a generalization of the concept of hy— pergraph transversal. We apply the general algorithm in two ways, for the problem of discovering maximal frequent sets in 0… CONTINUE READING
